We made these wire fish at our craft group recently. They look beautiful hanging under a light or in the window.
If you want to make one you will need wire of different thicknesses (we used recycled copper wire and craft shop copper wire), fine nose pliers or jewellery pliers for bending, and cutting pliers or wire cutters for cutting. Oh, and beads!
Use a thicker wire to make a body shape like this.
Start wrapping thinner wire around…
the children can then keep wrapping,
and adding in beads when they feel like it.
Add two side fins,
Twist them on,
and add a hanging wire.
